They had reached the point in their relationship. They had to move another level or leave each other. She asked him,
“Are you in or out? Are you willing to take the plunge or are you going to stand there thinking, wishing, analysing, contemplating? I need an answer but before you make a decision I have to tell you something I doubt I ever told you before. Whether you leave me after this is of no consequence, I just need to let you understand.
Do you know how much love I have for you? Do you understand what love has in store for you? Could anyone? I will give myself completely, if fact, I already have. It doesn’t matter whether you don’t love me as I do you. All I need is your love; your way.
I have loved you since before I first met you. I have loved you since the first time I saw you. I have loved you since the first time I kissed you. I have loved you since before you were conceived. I have loved you since before Creation. I was made to love you.
I can’t promise you the stars. It’s not mine to give away. I won’t promise you the moon; night walks won’t be the same without it. I can’t promise you the earth; I’d disrupt too many lives if I did. I won’t promise you the sun; the universe will be in chaos.
I do promise that I will kiss you goodnight before we fall asleep in each other’s arms. I do promise that you will be the first to know if something is bothering me. I do promise you that in all I do I will remember that my actions affect your life. I do promise to put no person or anything else before you (except myself, of course). I do promise to respect you as my life partner. I do promise you that I will try with every cell in my body to make a success of our relationship.
I promise you that at this point in my life I cannot picture myself without you. I cannot picture loving anyone else as deeply, completely and passionately.
